I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Surrounded by extremely talented and motivated people. Has competitive pay, interesting work, and lots of technical depth. Plenty of projects to move around to. Company has a fair redeployment program if a job function gets obsoleted.

Cons

Still is an inside-out company. Too many organizations touching a product. Encumbered by legacy products and legacy thinkers. Though it has ambitions to be more system oriented, the company still focuses and values silicon & CPU innovations the most.

Advice to Management

Management is making good moves in keeping the company competitive. Continue to value the employees and learn how to move faster.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very challenging environment, work with smart people, Reasonable base salary, excellent bonus and profit sharing programs, excellent other perks, good job satisfaction

    Cons

    Office politics has gotten worse over years, sometimes decisions take longer time and can be frustrating, annual focal review process has been complicated but improving

    Advice to Management

    Improve how people's ideas are recognized. Too many managers and other peers with louder vocal chords take credit for others' ideas. Sometimes, excellent ideas are not adopted or acknowledged immediately and months/years later when they are adopted, the originator doesn't get any credit.
    In spite of management efforts, office politics has gotten bad. People are afraid to take risks (compared to 1980-1990s) or think outside the box because either failure is penalized or thoughts outside the box are not accpeted readily. Openness is taking a toll. All of the above have been management promises for years but as we integrate more and more new hires from other companies in a hurry, the old culture has gotten eroded or become incosistent. Needs re-focus.
